To the Toyota FJ cruisers.....

..why are you all such dooshbags on the road?

At least every other day, without fail, I see one tailing me or someone else.

-accelerating from stop light to the next stop light and passing someone in the process

-cutting people off needlessly on a 30mph road

-being a general DB


Are you all so upset that you couldn't afford a Hummer h2?? get over it.

Certain types of cars seem to attract people who feel they need to prove something. Dodge pickups are like that, most of the people who buy them drive like DB's. They want you to know it has a Hemi and they are going to ride 6in from your bumper to prove it.

F'ing jerks happen to drive anything from a Prius to a Tahoe...the prevalance of which depends on the demographics and geographic location.

Down here in Texas, you can bet they are driving an SUV or a pickup...but I also spotted a guy in a C-Class pull some really errant maneuvers yesterday!
